We spent quite a time exploring the castle itself. It had towers about five stories high, stairs going round and round inside. It had several courtyard-style areas inside, and a grand hall that at one time had a wooden floor. We saw massive hearths here and there, and a couple oubliettes.
After exploring the castle, we picked up several castle guidebooks in the gift shop (each included floorplans of the castles) and went down to a shop we noticed from the ramparts – called the Knight in Arms. It had a suit of armour out in front of it, so of course we took interest. It was a combination armory and coats-of-arms shop. We drooled at some of the armour and swords on the walls, and went into town.
We passed the Merchant’s Guild building (still being used as such) and went down to the docks. We saw the World’s Smallest Livable House.
